Find usages for jar files

Answered

Hello!

I have a jar file and I would like to know which modules/libraries has dependencies on it. For the time being I know only way to do it - search in *.?ml files with external tool, because IDEA doesn't search in .iml files. Do I miss anything?

Hi,

It's possible to invoke 'Find Usages' action on a library. It will show all modules which use it:

Hi, Denis!
I am aware of it, but what I need is to invoke some action on .jar file and find all libraries that use it.

There is no such feature for now. Feel free to create an issue for that.

Great we can google this up (find usages I mean) - works as expected. But after a while I always forget where it is (or that it's only available in project structure) and it always strikes me why this is not in contextual menu in Project panel under External Libraries?
